Monster Energy Outbreak Tour Presents:
Fetty Wap – Welcome to the Zoo
Special Guest Post Malone
Showtime 8:00 pm / Doors 7:00 pm
For the artist named Fetty Wap known for sharing his love about his ride or die chick on his breakout hit “Trap Queen,” his hustle never stops.
Willie Maxwell II hails from New Jersey, like Redman and Joe Budden, calling home to a city called Paterson. The rapper explains it was difficult growing up there, specifically pointing out that “everybody is trying to make it out.” As he adjusts to the attention after blowing up from “Trap Queen” in 2014, his mission in hip-hop isn’t to become more famous, but to use his fortunes to help his community rise above their hardships.
On his records, Fetty Wap’s wobbly voice cuts through trap instrumentals and melodies, making his honest and aggressive lyrics a staple of Jersey’s rap scene. It’s a respectable career trajectory for someone who uploaded freestyled verses of “Trap Queen” to SoundCloud in March 2014. “I was dealing with that person at the time. She was juggin with me,” he says of the song’s inspiration. “We were really trying to make it happen. We got tired of riding regular.” Once Fetty Wap re-recorded the rough copy for radio, the track became the de facto winter anthem.
This year, Fetty Wap’s profile rose when he earned co-signs from stars like Trey Songz, Rihanna and Kanye West. He has been featured in Billboard, Complex and nominated for the 2015 XXL Freshman Class, a coveted list of the next wave of rap stars. With his growing success, he isn’t letting his condition (his left eye was lost to congenital glaucoma when he was a child) get in the way of chasing his dreams.
